Mastering Notes
-- This is a synthesized stereo version of original monaural source, produced using Mid-Side stereo processing techniques. The mastered mono version of this show is available as MOTB 0063 (shnid=91109).
-- Software - Bias Peak / Ozone / Nomad Factory EQs / Audiofile Engineering Sample Manager
-- Crossfaded the tape stop/start interruptions present in between every song break.
-- d2t04 - Patched cut off at 19:59 of "Dark Star" with about 33 seconds of gd69-12-11.sbd.gerland.10987.sbeok.shnf (shnid=10987).

-- The tape was stopped in between every song break.
-- d1t03 - Lead in to "Cold Rain And Snow" fades in on opening notes.
-- d1t07 - Lead in to "It Hurts Me Too" fades in on opening notes.
-- d1t08 - Lead in to "China Cat Sunflower" fades in on opening notes.
-- Big thanks and good karma to Norm Bowen and Andy Foust for helping to secure Rion's master cassette, so this live music and its history could be shared.
-- More big thanks and more good karma to John Hance who fixed and re-shelled Rion's cassette in order to facilitate its audio sound preservation.

This DS has some of the "Feelin' Groovy" elements of 11-02. Not quite as developed as that night, however. Pretty interesting, nonetheless.

Just a clean recording made even better. The boys are laid back, TC was always a great addition. Listen to the Airplane snippet prior to Dark Star, never can get enough Pig neither, for perfectionist, humble yourselves and dismiss the cuts before the tunes, a lot of tapers waited till the song started to save tape. That pause button always has the feel of the AUD recordings!!

Subject: Great Audience Recording!
The folks at MOTB have their SH!T together! This is an excellent audience recording, and made with only one microphone. Simply amazing! Do yourself a favor and click on the MOTB link that shows all the MOTB offerings on the Archive. Check out these shows:
7-2-89 FOB masterpiece
4-9-89 FOB wide stereo
8-6-71 Bertrando masterpiece (not MOTB)
